Samsung has officially announced the launch of their new Galaxy Tab Android tablet for the American market. The launch will happen in partnership with all the four major network carriers in the country – AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint. But the specs do not sound as attractive if you are an American. Firstly, the tablet is not going to support phone calling as it would in Europe and perhaps in a lot of other countries where Samsung is planning to launch the tablet. Secondly, the launch on Sprint should not however bring 4G to the Tab. Users will have access to 3G and Wi-Fi on the Tab, but will not be able to access the WiMAX version of Sprint.
Nevertheless, the 7″ Android tablet is still a pretty strong competitor to the iPad and is likely to offer good competition to Apple’s tablet. The prices are not revealed as yet since this has to come from the carriers. But the launch is supposed to happen during the holiday season.
